Born in 1949 in Seoul, Korea, Sung Sam Park
began painting at the age of twelve. His talent
and teaching abilities were quickly recognized
and by the age of thirteen, while still a junior
high school student, Park taught at the local
high school.

Early on, Park attracted the attention of
prominent artists and heads of state. Byun
Si-Jin, former University president of Jai Island ,
was his private art teacher and mentor. The
former president of South Korea, Yoo Bo-Sun,
personally awarded him many First Places in
the national competitions of the Mok-Woo Art
Society. Park is still the youngest person ever to
have competed in these competitions.

After graduating from Jung Ang University in
1973, Park traveled to France , where he studied
painting and lived with other young artists in
Paris . His artistic style today clearly reflects the
inspiration of the French Impressionists.

Sam Park returned to Korea briefly in 1984 to
participate in the national Olympic-sponsored
art competition for the upcoming 1988 Seoul




Olympic Games. With more than two thousand
entrants in the competition, Park won and
received a Gold Medal. Following the Olympics,
Park's painting was purchased by the Hyundai
Corporation for permanent display at their
corporate headquarters.

In 1986, Park became a member of the jury of
Heart and Mind Artists Association of Korea,
which is the organization that assesses all
artwork presented for juried competition in that
nation.

Park then returned to Europe, where he lived in,
Greece, Cyprus and France . While living on
Cyprus, Park was commissioned by the
President of Cyprus to paint the First Lady's
portrait. This and five other paintings by Park
are currently displayed in the collection in the
Presidential Palace. A painting that Park did
while in Greece was of Michael Dukakis's
birthplace, and was later purchased by the
former Governor of Massachusetts and
presidential hopeful.
